New START liquid grip wax- large temperature range

Postby greif » Sat Dec 23, 2017 10:07 pm

Start ski wax has new EASY liquid kick wax with the kind of range the Start Grip tape has. Regular is 41 to 14F, and cold version is 30 to -4F. I like the tape, but it is a pain to clean and apply and gets dirty is less than perfect snow. This looks easy to apply (5 minute dry according to the video). Not much info on the website.
-Can this be applied outside while skiing?
-Anybody use it yet? Opinion?

Interesting. I wonder how well it resists being scraped off by roots or pebbles

If anything like the grip tape- very much resistance to wear and scrape. Someone told me it can be applied in the field, but not as good as a clean base.

I tear off grip tape going over just a few roots.

Roots also wear off fishscales.

Roots don't bother hardwax ... or HAIRIES!
